A few tips:

  • I whipped my ricotta with some Creme Fraiche to make it a bit creamier, but it can be can be whipped on its own without Creme Fraiche as well.
  • I whip the ricotta to make it creamier and a bit more fluffy. Sometimes it can be a bit grainy straight out of the box hence I prefer to whip it up.
  • Preferably use a smaller zucchini to ensure it is juicy, fresh and crispy. The larger ones can tend to be a bit more dry in the middle.
  • I used parmesan cheese to top this carpaccio, but you can use any flavorful cheese that you like or have at home.
